Van Program Locations and Schedules
DAV Vans Serving Wisconsin

Wisconsin DAV offers free rides to any veteran who needs help getting to and from scheduled VA medical appointments.  We have 36 DAV vans serving more than 30,000 veterans annually across more than half the state. 

These vans serve major VA medical facilities in Madison, Milwaukee, Tomah, and Minneapolis: and VA outpatient clinics in Appleton, Green Bay, Superior, Union Grove, Wausau, and Wisconsin Rapids.

Certain DAV vans provide direct to/from service between a veteran’s home and the VA medical facility.

These vans are paid for as a result of donations from Individuals, Corporations and Organizations, and are operated by volunteer drivers.

Their locations, hours of operation, routes, and contact information are below:
